The NRM candidate and incumbent President Yoweri Museveni has promised a hospital and various infrastructural projects to people of Buliisa district.
Addressing a rally this afternoon, Museveni said government will take over Buliisa hospital that was built by Tullow oil under the oil company’s corporate social responsibility programme.
He said the hospital lacks adequate staff and medicine. He also promised more health centres in the new subcounties that do not have government-aided health center IIIs.
The president had earlier addressed a rally in Kakumiro town in Kibaale district.
Earlier, government watered down independent presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi’s advanced sub-county model for development.
The model proposes a sub-county as a center for development and service delivery with cooperative society offices as well as a community silo to empower people against poverty.
However while addressing the media at the Uganda Media Center on Monday, Trade, Industry and Cooperatives minister, Amelia Kyambadde has rubbished this as a total lie to Ugandans, saying such policy is not practical.
